The 28-year-old RB sensation from Georgia ( "I Like") defined with their second album "No Boys Allowed" the image of a confident woman in the 21st century. First taste is the single "Pretty Girl Rock", in the video clip itself Keri Hilson pays tribute to the big female music and style icons of the past 100 years.
Keri Hilson is on the verge of lying still in the dark stage and pray: "Please, God, my voice now let not fail." The past 48 hours were more than hectic for you: studio recordings, video, live performances, no time to breathe - and combined total of four hours of sleep for the singer from Georgia. Before appearing at the Paradise Theater in NYC, where she completed her new album "No Boys Allowed" will present, now therefore this short prayer. "Great nervous I actually never", but she says, "but today I am so tired that I already am a little thought, if my voice also join in all that." She inhaled deeply through and comes out at the Stage. The next moment, all - Boys, Girls, all together - furious: cheers and singing, countless mobile phone cameras are on her. Then begins Keri sing: her voice is crystal clear, penetrating, it sounds soulful and aggressive at the same time. The audience listens spellbound. "Wow," whispered one of those present in the crowd. "Her voice is amazing."
She was not known at the beginning of her career for her powerful voice: Hilson made initially as a songwriter a name when she sizes diverse hits as fOr Britney, Ciara, Ludacris, Kelly Rowland, Mary J. Blige or Usher composed. Later, she was then on as a guest Timbalands huge hits to hear (for example, "The Way I Are"). Today, it has over three million Facebook Likes on their account. No question: Keri Hilson has achieved a great deal in recent years. Especially in the last two.
For about two years ago that their debut album "In A Perfect World ..." the international charts conquered: Only the Single "I like" made the song titles all honor; she stayed for three weeks at # 1 in Germany (and a quarter in the top 3!). Moreover, gold's was already after four weeks, "I like" also ran the radio up and down (half a year in the top 10; to three weeks # 1 on the airplay charts) And finally turned out to be even as one of the ten biggest hits of 2010. During "In A Perfect World ..." was also in the top 5 of the Billboard charts and her two Grammy nominations (Best New Artist, Best Rap / Sung Collaboration) Gave, the 28-year-old but declined rather than back, but went soon from starting their successors: "No Boys Allowed".
A very personal album, as she says, and a provocative title, but which does not mean what you might think at first glance could. "I do not want the men so categorically. I'm doing more around the point in a woman's life where one needs a man. A real man, I mean. Tell an Adult. . No more little guys "Strictly speaking, the entire album - starting with the poetic "Beautiful Mistake" (Which was a hit single in the United States) to the crass "The Way You Love Me", in which Polow da Don has made in this case for the rich club-beat - a call to be more confident.
Your message is nowhere more apparent than in the case of "Pretty Girl Rock", the first single: Keri articulates About one of Ne-Yo and Chuck Harmony produced midtempo track, in which she has been in love immediately. "I still remember how Ne-Yo has played me the beat in the studio, "she says. "And I was immediately blown away. Mir is very important that women who listen to a track, now do not think I will make a on cocky. On the contrary, I mean to say that no one has the right to us women to say how we have to feel in our bodies. Because frankly, most feel but only good when other they find beautiful. One should also independently thereof may not feel beautiful! "
The Phenomenal video "Pretty Girl Rock" by director Joseph Kahn (U2, Gwen Stefani) is so great that Perez Hilton and the Billboard-Magazine already told supporters: Keri slips into the clip on the roles of various female icons of the past 100 years, from the 1920s to today, from jazz singer Josephine Baker About Diana Ross, Donna Summer, Janet Jackson to T-Boz of TLC - to finally just they be yourself and the tradition of strong, successful women in the here and now to be updated. "With the video I wanted to bow before these female icons who have shown so much courage and so inspires other women. I hope that me succeed. "
Also the of Timbaland produced track "Breaking Point", an absolute airplay hit in the States, is an appeal to the ladies in the world: Desperate relations nobody needs, so the statement that enough is enough. "Buyou Music", from Hilson written and produced by Boi-1da, deals with certain standards, set the women in the men's choice of the day: "I can not stand, the scrounger include types. Such types I say: Do your own thing ", so Keri. "However, that will now not look as I would on the LP general men-bashing operate." "All The Boys" however, a song written by John Legend, immediately goes under the skin, so romantic is the story: "Because it's about a woman who did not know what love is actually - until it has at some point but found the right. The piece just feels incredibly good. "
Under the patronage of Timbaland and Polow da Don emerged as Executive Producer Team, is "No Boys Allowed" an album that femininity in all its facets celebrated first and foremost - and also the vocal can of Keri Hilson. It is aware of no become longplayer on which a collaboration after the other, even if the list of guest musicians such as name Ne-Yo, John Legend, Boi-1da, Stargate and Chuck Harmony find - and Kanye, Chris Brown and Rick Ross but in a few exceptional cases were allowed to share the microphone with her. Instead, one encounters a more mature Hilson, that advocates for the beautiful sex: "I write songs, the women are to strengthen the back. New Age Girl Power song, if you will "And songs that also like men". My perspective is already that of women, but the men learn from what women think, what makes them tick, and what they really men hold ", she concludes.
Speaking of male fans: Polow da Don is one of them. "this new album is incredibly inspiring," says the producer. "Timbaland and I can both of us learn a lot of it, because this album is one definitely among the best albums of 2011. "
